Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection

Resources digitised by Sydney Living Museums

The Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection specialises in the history of house and garden design and interior furnishing in New South Wales, Australia, from 1788.

The strength of our collection lies in its wide range of formats, including architectural pattern books, architectural fragments, wall and floor coverings, manufacturers’ trade catalogues and sample books, garden ornament, fittings (including curtain and blind hardware, door and window furniture), soft furnishings and trimmings, personal papers and manuscripts, pictures, photographs, books, periodicals and oral histories.

The CSL&RC also holds some remnant personal libraries, sheet music collections and part of the foundation collection of the Parliamentary Library of New South Wales.

See our library homepage for more information.
